Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently went to Lush to check out their new Asteroid City collaboration range and I thought that today I would talk to you all about it.
Asteroid Bath Bomb
This bath bomb is inspired by Asteroid Day that is celebrated in the Asteroid City film by Wes Anderson and the hypothetical planet from the film that is known as Magnavox-27,
This bath bomb contains Grapefruit, Bergamot and Almond Oils which creates a summery scent that reminds me personally of sweet shops. If you have tried Space Girl or Raspberry Blower Bubble Bar from Lush then you may like the scent of this bomb as Asteroid shares the same scent as these. This bath bomb will turn your bath into an ethereal escapist oasis via turning it a mixture of silver, blue, red and purple. I love this scent as one of the first bombs that I had from Lush back in the day was Space Girl so when I smelt this bomb it instantly took me back to when Space Girl was available all year round in stores. I also think that the mixture of the oils in this product make a sort of tart summer drink which I absolutely adore. If you know anyone that loves all things Asteroids or Wes Anderson then this bath bomb will definitely be for them. I would also suggest getting this if you’re looking for a bomb to compliment the gorgeous weather that we are having in the UK at the moment. Priced at £6.
Asteroid City Shower Gel
This shares the same scent as the Asteroid Bath Bomb. This gel like the bomb contains Grapefruit, Bergamot and Almond Oils which creates a sort of blackcurrant mixed with walking into a sweet shop sort of scent to me. The colour of this gel is a pretty pastel blue which just evokes British blue skied Summers to me, I love this gel. My only qualm about this gel though is the texture. It is slightly on the runnier side which I don’t mind as I use intergalactic Gel from Lush quite a bit and that is extra runny but I do imagine that I may have to be careful with this gel if I was to travel with it. If you’re looking for a Shower Gel to perk you up this 2023 or for one to use before going on a date to see the new Asteroid City film then I would definitely recommend this. I also think that this gel would go well with other fruity scents such as The Comforter Body Spray or Hairdressers Husband Perfume from Lush. Priced at £15 for a 290g bottle.
UFO Shower Jelly
UFO? Don’t you mean Unidentifiable Object? This shower jelly will definitely create a lasting memory! This product contains Fair Trade Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Lime and Neroli Oils and Olibanium Resinoid. If you have ever smelt the Zesty products from Lush and wanted a Shower Jelly that smelt like Zesrty then you are in luck as this Shower Jelly shares the same scent as Zesty. I have to be in the right mood to enjoy Zesty but when I do oh it’s lovely. The Lime works beautifully with he Neroli and Olibanum in this product as the blend of ingredients reminds me of a mysterious creamy Lime drink. I’d definitely recommend this for those in your life who love programmes like X Files but id also recommend it for a treat yourself gift. Whack it in the freezer, let it firm up and you’ve got a product that you can use to treat yourself this Summer. Priced at £7.
Let’s not leave soaps out of this unworldly mix of gorgeous products. This soap contains Sand, Bergamot and Cypress Oils and Blackcurrant Absolute. This creates a beautifully sweet Blackcurrant scent. To me, the scent of this soap reminds me of a Kir Royale cocktail. If you like all things The Comforter from Lush then you will love this soap as it shares the same scent. (Does anyone else remember Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly that shares the same scent too?) The sand in Doomsday creates a scrub that helps ro remove dead skin cells and ensure that skin is super smooth. Personally, I prefer a slightly grittier scrub like the old Salted Coconut Hand Scrub that used to be available at Lush once upon a time. However, this sand scrub enhanced soap does a good job at scrubbing the skin and is a great product for when you don’t have time for a full on exfoliation. According to a staff member, the disc that is on this soap can be used as a sort of stand for the Asteroid Bomb. Priced at £6.
Asteroid City is out in cinemas on the 23rd June.
